Re: Heat shrink connectors
It does depends which ones you buy..
Look for the best quality (generally the most expensive) or smear cheaper ones with silicone if you're really concerned, but wrapping each connection with electrical tape good and tight will keep the water out for the length of time you'll have the trailer in the water.
